Experimenting with colours (Water-colour)

Yesterday, I was trying a landscape. After 3 failed attempts, at 11:45 pm, I decided to do a quick still life. Inspired by many paintings of shoes, especially by everyday painters, I thought of painting my chappals which are very "Indian". Halfway I realized that I had put them on an off-white wall in white light and there was almost zero contrast. So suddenly I decided to use dark background either grey or violet or dark green. The end result was quite interesting! After 3 failures, this was enough reason for me to sleep peacefully.
